Tim Ho Wan 添好运 @ The Garden, Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur
It has been a while, Tim Ho Wan, the famed Michelin-starred dim sum restaurant from Hong Kong landed in Malaysia. However, this is only our first visit to this famous restaurant. We were smart enough to be in restaurant early in the morning before the weekend crowd.
Out of our expectation, their menu has limited choices. But good thing about it, we don't need to scratch our heads about what dim sum to order on the assumption that those selected dim sum on the menu are all finely chosen.
|Traditional Baked Egg Tarts 传统手工蛋塔|
The multi-layers pastry is good and very crispy, perfectly matched with the soft and smooth custard filling.
|Baked Bun with BBQ Pork 脆皮焗叉烧包|
Another baked item-- BBQ Pork Bun, which overturned the traditional idea of having steamed Char Siew Bun. Different from the Seremban baked bun （烧包）, the pastry is more to "shortbread" texture. The Char Siew filling is with appropriate moisture, so overall the baked bun doesn't taste too dry.
|Beancurd Skin Roll with Shrimp 鲜虾腐皮卷|
Beancurd shrimp roll is my all-time favourite, but this one from Tim Ho Wan is slightly disappointing. As you could see from the photo, it is very oily. I expect it to be of a higher standard with its Michelin ranking.
|Prawn Dumpling 晶莹鲜虾饺|
Luckily, the prawn dumpling that was served subsequently made up for the super oily beancurd shrimp roll. From the thin and translucent skin, we can see through its contents and true enough when I had it in my mouth, the filling was full of fresh shrimp.
|Pan Fried Carrot Cake 香煎萝卜糕|
The pan fried carrot cake is quite oily too, but not as bad as the beancurd shrimp roll. It was slightly burnt on the surface of the carrot cake, but it actually enhanced the fragrance of the carrot cake. The texture of the carrot cake was just perfect, not too hard and was easily melt in my mouth.
|Rice with Chicken, Sausage and Mushroom 腊肠北菇鸡饭|
|Stirred Fried Hor Fun with Pork 干炒肉片河粉|
Cantonese Fried Hor Fun, which is full with "wok hei" and the smell itself made it super attractive. With the fresh and crunchy beansprout and chives, the texture of the simple fried hor fun becomes more diversified.
|Vermicelli Roll with Shrimp 韮王鲜虾肠|
Traditional Hong Kong style chee cheong fun, which definitely cannot be missed out in a famous Hong Kong dim sum restaurant. The rice skin was thin and silky smooth, can easily absorb the not-too-thick light soy sauce beneath the chee cheong fun. The soy sauce gravy wasn't too salty, complement well with the chee cheong fun and still allow us to taste the freshness of the prawn filling.
